Nano Dimension, a leading printing
electronics company in the area of 3D printing, announced today that Nano Dimension Technologies, a fully owned subsidiary of Nano Dimension, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent andTrademark Office for the printing of 3D models, which includes electronic conductors.
contain conductive traces – a process the new patent would cover. Nano Dimension
was able to make this new technological development as a result of its work
developing materials and 3D printers for multilayer PCB prototyping.
The sintering of a printed metal conductor within a 3D printed polymer allows for
complex connectors to be 3D printed and also makes it possible to 3D print molded
connectors directly onto electronic circuits. The newly developed process may also
be applied to 3D printing of non-flat electronic circuits as well as structural objects
with embedded electronic circuits.
The materials and processes required for 3D printing objects containing
semiconductors may result in a significant breakthrough for the industry, enabling the
creation of freeform electronic products that cannot be created using current circuit
